1 Sequence of Events; Summarization Lesson James Forten: from Now Is Your Time! Unit 3, Lesson 14 Day # 1 Created by: M. Christoff, Enrichment Specialist, Field Local Schools

2 Objectives for Today Students will identify the sequence of events. Students will infer unstated events and their sequence. Students will summarize a text, using sequence.

3 Sequence of Events  is the order in which events take place.

4 Summarize To briefly restate important parts of your text in your own words.

5 Chronological Order is the time sequence of events.

6 Sequencing of Events and Summarization Good readers use the sequence of events to summarize and help the them understand informational text. Read the Background on page 350.

7 Sequence of Events  Authors may organize their information and ideas in chronological order.  When signal words such as first, then, and finally are not used, it is up to readers to infer sequence.

8 Sequence of Events  We will use a Flow Chart to help organize events in order from the selection.

9 Privateers (Projectable 14.2)  During the Revolutionary War, the Americans allowed private ships to join the navy as privateers.  These boats were manned by private citizens to capture enemy ships.  First, a privateer would attack an enemy supply ship.

10 Privateers (Projectable 14.2)  Then sailors from the privateer would board the captured enemy ship.  The privateer captain and several crew members sailed the enemy ship to a friendly port.  Next, a court official at port looked at the captured ship’s papers

11 Privateers (Projectable 14.2)  and crew to see if the ship did belong to the enemy. If it did, the court would sell the ship and all it carried.  Finally, the money made from the sale would be divided and shared.

12 Think Aloud  I see signal words in the passage.  However, I also see that the order of certain events has to be inferred.  Knowing that the events are in chronological order will help.

13 Use a Flow Chart to record the sequence of events. (Projectable 14.2) Event 5: The ship sold and money shared. Event 4: Courts decide if the ship belonged to the enemy. Event 3: Sailors bring the enemy ship to a friendly port. Event 2: Privateer attacks and captures an enemy ship. Event 1: Private ship joins American Navy as privateer.

14 Think Aloud  The events from the Flow Chart make a nice summary of the story. “ A private ship joins the American Navy as a privateer. It attacks and captures an enemy ship. The sailors bring the enemy ship to a friendly port. Courts decide if the ship belonged to the enemy. Then the ship is sold, and the money is shared.”

16 Objectives for Today Students will identify the sequence of events. Students will infer unstated events and their sequence. Students will summarize a text, using sequence.

17 Sequence of Events  is the order in which events take place.

18 Summarize To briefly restate important parts of your text in your own words.

19 Chronological Order is the time sequence of events.

20 Sequencing of Events and Summarization Good readers use the sequence of events to summarize and help the them understand informational text.

21 Sequence of Events  Authors may organize their information and ideas in chronological order.  When signal words such as first, then, and finally are not used, it is up to readers to infer the sequence.

22 Sequence of Events  We will use a Flow Chart to help organize events in order from the selection, James Forten.  Authors may write events out of order. Dates and signal words can help the reader organize events in chronological order.

23 Use a Flow Chart to record the sequence of events of James Forten’s Life. (Projectable 14.3b) Event 5: James befriended the British captain’s son. Then James was sent to a British prison ship instead of to the West Indies as a slave. Event 4: The Active surrendered. The Royal Louis then sailed into a trap. The crew of the Royal Louis became prisoners on a British ship. Event 3: In the summer of 1781, James was on the Royal Louis. The Royal Lewis engaged in battle with the British ship Active. Event 2: In 1781, when James was 14, his mother gave him permission to go to sea. Event 1: James was born in Philadelphia in He went to school and helped his father make sails in a shop. When James was seven, his father died.

24 Think Aloud Summarization  To summarize the events after the Active surrendered, I’ll identify the main idea. The Royal Louis works as a privateer. Then I’ll figure out the important details that support that idea.  First, the Royal Louis turned over the Active’s prisoners to military authorities. Then, it restocked its crew and supplies, and returned to sea.

25 What sequence of events happened after James signed up to go on the Royal Louis? Tell the events in chronological order. (pp ) (Projectable 14.4) Event 4: On September 27, the Active was sold and the profits were split. Event 3: The Active surrendered. Event 2: The Royal Louis entered into a battle with the Active. Event 1: In 1781, James signed up to go on to the Royal Louis.

26 Think Aloud  The text states that James signed up to go on the Royal Louis in Then it goes on to state that the Royal Louis get into a battle with the Active.  As I read further, I can see that the text continues to tell about events in James’s life in the order that they happened.  It includes some dates. Dates can act as signal words, and I know that signal words help me understand that the text is structured in chronological order.

27 Questions To Think About p  How do we know when the crew of the Royal Louis was taken aboard the Amphyon?  The text says that the Royal Louis sailed into a British trap on October 16, When they surrendered, they were taken aboard the Amphyon.  What happened to James aboard the Amphyon?  James became friends with the British captain’s son and was sent to the Jersey, a prison ship.

28 What are the main events that happen after the Royal Louis sets out for the second time? Tell the events in chronological order. (pp ) (Projectable 14.4) Event 4: News of General Cornwallis’s surrender arrived. Event 3: James became friends with the British captain’s son and was sent to the Jersey, a prison ship. Event 2: The crew surrendered and was taken aboard the Amphyon. Event 1: On October 16, 1781, the Royal Louis sailed into a British trap.

29 Does the author mostly use sequential structure, or are there many flashbacks? Use text evidence to support your answer.(pp )  The structure is sequential because events are described in order.  The story begins with James’s birth and ends with his becoming a wealthy abolitionist.

30 Review of Sequencing of Events and Summarization Good readers use the sequence of events to summarize and help the them understand informational text.

31 Review of Sequence of Events  Authors may organize their information and ideas in chronological order.  When signal words such as first, then, and finally are not used, it is up to readers to infer the sequence.
